Adamawa State Governor, Alhaji Umaru Ahmadu Fintiri goes tough and says that the state Commissioner of Police should provide the alleged killer of Abdallah.
Abdallah was alleged to have been murdered over a missing GSM phone and allegedly tortured by operatives of the security apparatus, ‘Operation Farauta’ to death while the case was almost covered up.
Contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Humwahshi Wonosikou in Yola, the state capital, it queried as to why the deceased was arrested and turtured to death.
Fintiri expressed dissatisfaction and frowned on the unholy development and ordered for the police to carry out an intensive investigation into the matter, so as to take up measures against any person or persons involved if anything shady is discovered.
Abdallah is said to have been arrested at his house on the orders of who claimed onwner of the stolen GSM phone.
Fintiri, on this note, appealed for calm as investigation was ongoing.
He commiserated with the family of the deceased over the loss.
The governor, after the assurances, warned that: “The life of every Adamawa citizen matters and therefore government will ensure justice is seen to be done while also protecting the rights of all peace loving people of the state.”
The state police command spokesperson, SP Suleiman Nguroje, confirmed that so far four persons have been in police net, two police Inspectors, a Corporal and a civilian.
He said the neighbours who gave wrong allegation were under investigations as at the time of filing in this report.
He said, he could not comment on what killed the deceased since the corps was in the hospital for ortopsy until the medical report is out, and that the deceased’s lawyer had already taken legal action by reporting to the commissioner of police.
According him, during the investigations, Abdallah could not talk since he was tortured to coma.
He added that not quite long, Abdallah had given up the ghost.
The commissioner frowned at the act, saying that whoever confirmed guilty in the misconduct amongst his officers, there would be no option than to take adequate measures.
